Entergy New Orleans - Residential Energy Efficiency Program

April 29, 2024


Entergy New Orleans has designed an incentive program to help residential customers understand and make energy efficiency improvements in eligible homes. Incentives are geared towards both individual measures and whole home upgrades. Individual equipment incentives include central AC systems, heat pumps, HVAC system tune-ups, and other comprehensive measures. 

The Home Performance with ENERGY STAR Program provides ENO residential customers with home energy assessments, recommendations for energy savings and incentives towards the cost of those upgrades. A range of insulation, air sealing, ductwork, solar window screens and radiant barriers are eligible for incentives through this program. Residents may qualify for a $150 rebate on the home energy assessment, based on if the homeowner decides to install any of the prescribed energy efficiency measures identified in the energy audit. Contact Entergy New Orleans for more information on the details of this program.
